1 Definition(s) from various sources:

Saindhavaka (सैन्धवक).—One of the ten type of lāsyāṅga, or ‘elements of the gentle dance’;—In it the character has Prakrit speeches forgetting the convention, endowed with the karaṇas of vīṇā well-effected. In saindhavaka, Saindhavi dialect is used. This use of dialects is included by the poets in their plays as it helps the rasa-realization. Abhinava states that Rājaśekhara composed the sattaka Karpūramañjarī in Prakrit only, for the Prakrit language helps extremely in the evoking of the Erotic sentiment. Bhejjala composed the Rasakānka, Rādhā-vipralambha using the Saindhava language profusely. Candraka composed his plays in Sanskrit alone as the Sanskrit language helps the Heroic and the Terrific sentiments particularly. Thus the striking variety of the ten rūpakas (‘major dramatic forms’) caused by the use of the befitting language is accepted by the sage Bharata by describing this lāsyāṅga.
